Richie Cozzolino

Richie Cozzolino joined KREX 5 in January 2018. He grew up in the metro Detroit area, attending high school at the University of Detroit Jesuit and college at Michigan State University. After receiving his degree at MSU in journalism, Richie went on to work as a news producer at both WILX-TV in Lansing, MI and WOOD-TV8 in Grand Rapids. 

After getting experience behind the camera, Richie decided the sports world is a bit more fun. In his time at KREX 5, he’s covered the JUCO World Series, X Games Aspen, Monday Night Football, and (of course), the crazy world of high school football on the Western Slope. 

Richie is a diehard Michigan State football and basketball fan, and will chat for hours about how his Detroit sports teams have been a major disappointment in the last decade. Richie loves hiking on the Western Slope, but is just as happy enjoying a Grand Junction Rockies game on his day off.
